Plants Need CO2 To GrowMay 09, 2012
No sea level rise catastrophe?
Source: World Climate Report
As one of the central tenets of climate change catastrophe involves inundation by rapidly rising seas, we like to visit the issue from time to time here at World Climate Report. Interestingly, or perhaps some may prefer predictably, we usually are able to uncover plenty of science that indicates that the situation is not nearly so dire.
More evidence of this was published this week in Science magazine.
Moon et al. were able to make a few regional generalizations. Glaciers in the northwestern portion of Greenland typically showed accelerations thought the 2000-2010 period, while glaciers in southeastern Greenland showed a speed up from about 2000-2005 and then their flow rate remained fair steady from 2006-2010.
